Product Description
So you want to get your new group of kids up and exploring the room? I like to get students exploring their environment the first or second day of school. The quicker they know where things are, the more the tone is set for independence. And yet, before I let them roam around, I want to set a purpose so they don't feel bored or aimless. The solution for me has been a scavenger hunt!

This product includes:
* 10 numbered word tags
* a double sided recording page
* an answer key

Teaching Tips:
To prepare, cut out the cards and tape them on or near each matching item in your room. You may want to prepare a surface for students to write on, such as clipboards. You may also want to pair up students. I get a sense of their abilities based on conversations with their teacher from the year before or their report cards from kindergarten. You may also want to tell students you are going to help make sure they are spread out and have space, and then tell each partnership an area of the room to start in. Remind them to make good choices if there are a lot of kids in one area, to return to it later on.
